Taking off: Why planespotters are being welcomed by some airports
Date created :
Brussels Airport has spent a whopping €650,000 to build viewing platforms and facilities for plane spotting enthusiasts. It says it simply wanted to welcome those with a passion for planes, who may one day become pilots. As airport security remains tight, measures like this are receiving a warm welcome. FRANCE 24's Wassim Cornet met with those passionate enough to get up before dawn to watch aircraft roll down runways.
